    Transiting Doha, Qatar

    I'd highly recommend the Oryx hotel for the 10 hour layover. It's nice to have a quiet place to rest and is well worth the cost in my opinion.

    NAMIBIA: Omujeve Hunting Safaris - Caprivi Strip

    I was lucky to thread the needle with travel and flight cancellations to finally hunt in Zambia earlier in August. I can completely relate to your feelings right now. Please post your hunt review. I'm sure many of us will be waiting to read about it.

    ZAMBIA: Buffalo Hunting At Mbizi Safaris Game Reserve in Luangwa Valley

    This is a great question and I should've made it clearer somewhere in my final post. I did not end up getting my first buffalo. We looked the second one over and he was not previously hit. As we were approaching him, we got a chance to see the herd move off in the distance and counted 9 buff...

    Thank you for your feedback. I wish the edit button were active for longer as I didn't know it would cut me off. I'm glad I put pen to paper on it as the details are still very vivid.

    We're back in camp just in time for a sundowner and we're still on the deck watching as our celebrity puku is bedding on the sandbar below us. Two elephants have just crossed the river and are coming over our side of the river bank. We notice some impala towards the same bank becoming spooked...

    Day 7 - We're out on the road early again at 5:30AM and things are feeling a little different this morning. To start, we're all a little more layered up as this is easily the coldest AM we've had this week. It must've been near 10 Celsius if that's even possible. Crisp enough that we can see...

    This was a recent burn area and the smoke was still hovering. Perhaps the softer ash would make for quieter tracking and allow us to close the distance a little bit better. With the grass gone, maybe I get a shooting lane now....

    One of the things Michael wanted to experiment with was smoking one of the impala hams with mopane wood chips. This is the smoker that he's built next to the kitchen and Dyson is helping to get a good seal on the chamber. The first smoked batch turned out great by the way.
